Brian Lebel Is The 2017 True Westerner And Victor Higgins Rocks

January 20, 2017
   A great time down at Scottsdale Museum of the West last night. We honored Brian Lebel with our 2017 True Westerner Award and we all got to see the new Taos Artists Show which just went up. My favorite painting is this one by Victor Higgins, called "Hunter In Snow." 

Victor Higgins: "Hunter In Snow"

And here's Victor painting out of the trunk of his car, I believe in the 1940s:

Victor On Location In New Mexico

The irony, to me, is he's probably younger than I am now. Ha. Still, I highly recommend seeing the show if you are enamored of the Taos School of Painting, which I am.

"By the end of his life, his palette was bold, his style confident, powerful, and distinctly modern."
—Dean A. Porter on Victor Higgins
